If you go on Ravelry and look at the projects for Derecho, several have been knit with dk or sport weight, even a couple with worsted.
Yeah, I just wasn't sure what it would look like, or how much heavier it'd be. Looked like there was one that might've been done on a heavy worsted or even a chunky and I thought it lost something in translation. Not sure who I'd make it for either, now I think of it. But hey. Its free, right?
